Una voce femminile fuori campo racconta. In una notte di San Lorenzo (10 agosto) del '44, nel paese di San Miniato nella campagna toscana, i tedeschi, che stanno evacuando, convincono il vescovo a raccogliere la gente nella chiesa con la promessa di lasciare tutti in vita. Ma una parte della popolazione dà retta a Galvano, che preferisce la fuga (con ragione perché la chiesa salterà in aria). I fuggitivi, dopo un percorso di paura con poche parentesi di serenità, riusciranno a raggiungere la libertà. Un bellissimo film dei fratelli Taviani premiato a Cannes. Un film corale, con momenti di alta poesia, dovuta anche alla bravura degli attori fra cui spicca Omero Antonutti nel ruolo di Galvano
